Description Xander D Harkness 2004-09-01 17:35:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
I ran up2date -u against my normal rawhide up2date sources.  Up2date
installed new sources without providing a sources.rpmnew or
sources.rpmsave versions.

I tried rerunning up2date to obtain the rest of my updates due and
up2date reported all packages current.  It checked URLs for Fedora Core 2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.up2date to latest version of up2date in rawhide using the
development sources
2.up2date will install and alter the sources to pull packages from
without providing a backup

Actual Results:  Up2date rpm does provide a backup of the sources file
and replaces the existing file

Expected Results:  I would expect the new up2date sources file to be
called sources.rpmnew to allow new URLs to be migrated

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous comment.  If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the
appropriate version.  The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant

up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a
security issue.
